The new school year is here and summer has officially ended. But don’t get too bummed out about classes starting up again – a new year can also be a great time to try new things, upgrade your personal sense of style, or even completely reinvent yourself! Teens: here’s what’s trending this fall so you can get ready to head back to school looking cool.

Bomber Jackets

One of the best parts of back-to-school shopping is picking out that perfect jacket for fall. After a summer of short sleeves, choosing a new coat for the new season that reflects your style is exciting! This year, the top trend for the young academic is undoubtedly the bomber jacket. Edgy and chic, the bomber can be worn with anything: preppy plaids, distressed jeans, a camel corduroy skirt, or a pair of laidback joggers – both guys and gals alike will be sporting this versatile jacket all season long.


Get Colorful

Pantone has released several new colors for fall, and they are already taking the retail world by storm. Look for lots of rusty reds, spicy oranges, warm yellows, cool grays and blues, emerald greens, and dusty pinks. Whether you are a varsity football player, a seasoned mathlete, or the star of the musical, you can’t go wrong wearing any of these fresh autumn colors. Try a pair of brick red skinny jeans, or a mustard sweater, and you may just surprise yourself. You can view Pantone’s Fashion Color Report here to see exactly which shades you should wear this fall.


Stylish School Bags

From totes to fashion backpacks to hip cross-bodies, a stylish school bag should definitely be on your back-to-school shopping list, too. If you are dealing with a strict dress code, or your school has uniforms, a statement school bag is necessary to show off your sense of style. Fringe and tassel details, leather, shiny metallics, tribal patterns, and florals are the most popular textures and prints for bags this fall – just make sure that you can fit your bevy of books and school supplies inside!

Take on these trends this season, and you might just look too cool for school!
